MAYBE I’M AMAZED
MAYBE I’M AMAZED……that the Republicans, especially guys like former Chairman Ed Gillespie are criticizing President Obama for using the death of Osama Bin Laden as a campaign issue. Lets rewind to the 2002 campaign when the Bush administration basically told America that they’d be safer with a Republican Congress than any Democrats. Man, this is really hypocritical and hysterical if you asked me. If Jimmy Carter is going to get blamed for not getting the hostages out on time and Reagan gets credit, then Obama and his administration should get credit for killing Bin Laden. In one of his rare occurrences, Obama actually did what he said he was going to do.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that politicos in the state are down on Governor Tom Corbett for his political endorsements in this year’s primary. Corbett only missed on the Senate race. And the nomination of Tom Smith is certainly not going to carry any scars for Corbett in 2014 when he most likely runs for another term.
MAYBE I'M AMAZED.......that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton now has a 97% approval rating. That's a far cry from her times as First Lady and in her run for President in '08. MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that the dust seems to be settling in the workings of the Luzerne County Council. It seems like County Manager Bob Lawton is actually getting a chance to take a breath and step back and perform the functions he was hired for.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…that Regs Philbin, in retirement seems more busy than ever before. Regis has been making the rounds on Letterman and Leno and is the most energetic 80 year old I’ve ever seen.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that the more trouble guys like Tony Lupas and Ray Musto face, the sicker they get. Not having an understating of what they are doing? Not have the intellectual wherewithal to withstand a trial? Maybe if we paid them……………their senses would reawaken.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that Yankee Mariano Rivera’s career is going to end on the note that he hurt himself shagging fly balls in the outfield. Of all the big games he was in, this is how it ends?
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….How every March the Yankees say they have more pitching than they need. And by May, they don’t.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….that 97% of the immigrants who take the citizenship yest…pass. And yet there is a segment of people in America who want to keep them out.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…..that the Republican candidate for Congress in the 17th Congressional District wants to abolish the IRS. My questions are as follows: why, how and what would you replace it with? Are we going to outlaw money and run the government on wampum?
MAYBE I’M AMAZED….butterflies taste with their hind heels.
MAYBE I’M AMAZED…that rock and pop legend Frankie Valli turned 78 yesterday. A boyhood favorite of mine, Valli was a blockbuster in concert and will go down in history as one of the true great legendary artists of pop music.
